(Newser) – LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian invited pals to an alleged engagement party yesterday—then just went ahead and got married, reports People. The couple exchanged "personalized" vows in front of a crowd of 40 at a private California home. "I'm looking forward to settling down," Rimes recently told the mag. "Settling into our life."

"LeAnn and Eddie were happily married today surrounded by their closest family and friends," says a Rimes spokesman. "They thank everyone for their well wishes."
